ZFD Project Vision:
The vision is to create a sustainable network where every deserving student will get an opportunity and access to STEM education through the Zakat funding. The proposed blockchain-based fund distribution network will provide the total trust to the zakat giver that the person will know exactly where the fund is going. By giving absolute trust and confidence, the giver will happily contribute his funding more to the deserving students. The team believes that the ZFD network will create better opportunities for deserving students to access STEM education from primary to tertiary levels, leading to Bangladesh's sustainable development.
